Tim Stowe

Tim is a wildlife enthusiast with a passion for conservation who has spent much of his career with the RSPB.

A scientist by background, Tim began his working life studying seabirds at the RSPB. Then after gaining a PhD on the management of Welsh oak woods, his focus switched to researching corncrakes in the Outer Hebrides. This work led to conservation improvements which saw the UK population of this threatened species treble.

Tim went on to lead the RSPB’s operations in north Scotland before moving to Cardiff as the charity’s Director for Wales. Here, he helped to shape the National Assembly’s direction by serving on various stakeholder groups while further developing RSPB Cymru’s work.

In 2009, Tim joined the RSPB’s Management Board  as Director of International Operations, where he continued to develop capacity within the BirdLife International Partnership, until his retirement in 2017.

Tim is a keen hill walker and enjoys the occasional run. He is proud to have lost none of his childhood enthusiasm for nature’s wonders.
